Mornington Peninsula artist and science explorer Gee Ryan (Gerald) is holding a major showing of his paintings. Gee’s Love One Another and Care For Our Planet exhibition runs from Saturday, September 14, to Sunday, September 22.
The exhibition includes paintings from Gee’s Love One Another Basin series, one of which has been acquired by the world-renowned Luciano Benetton Collection in Milan, Italy. The Australian contemporary art portion of the collection, including Gee’s painting, is travelling to the world’s major art centres, showcasing the works of 210 established and emerging Australian painters.
“I focus on the use of colour to celebrate the mysteries that surround us,” Gee said. “And my art reflects my view that, in order for humanity to achieve a peaceful and lasting future, each of us needs to live our life in accordance with two principles: love one another, and care for our planet.”
